This Sunday, July 12, 10:30 am — LIVESTREAM ONLY: We will reflect upon the blessings of summer with inspiration from a well-known gospel story about the birds of the air and the flowers of the field (Matthew 6:25-34) and a well-known poem by Mary Oliver (“The Summer Day”). We will also celebrate communion, so please consider having a sip of juice and a piece of bread on hand so that we can share the communion elements together. After the service, everyone is invited to gather on Zoom for a Coffee Hour. Click here to access the link.
“I don’t know exactly what a prayer is. I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down into the grass, how to kneel down in the grass, and how to be idle and blessed” – Mary Oliver from “The Summer Day“
Join the service at 10:30 am via the MWUC Facebook site. If you don’t have Facebook, you will be able to access video of the service later through this website.
